    Beautiful portrait – good to see children being children, no matter what else is happening around them :)

Tibetan children in Nyalam

The story behind "Tibetan children in Nyalam"

Just a stop on the way to Lhasa or Everest basecamp, nothing much to see and do except some bars, restaurants and shops. Nyalam, Tibet. Oh, and if you know where to look, some fun all-night karaoke bars! I just wandered and wondered around when I met this cute couple

I had no clue what they were laughing about, but these two were completely lost in their own comical world. They lit up the ugly streets of Chinese influenced Nyalam. Eternal cold winds and dusty roads seemed not to have taken away their joy in life.
They did not pose and hardly even noticed me, but something really funny must have happened as they were laughing and clinging to eachother like 2 drunks :)
